I'm only selling this bass because I'm thinning down the herd and even if it's a terrific bass (that neck pickup is just bloody awesome), the 32 inches scale and narrow string spacing at the bridge is always bothering me a bit.

And here, a link to a video demo make by the crazy adorable Johnny LONG :
The bass has been fully set up professionally by Christophe LEDUC. It has a new battery and is fitted with a brand new set of Alembic CX-3/45L compression wound nickel steel alloy strings (45 - 65 - 80 - 105), which really fit the bass to perfection.
What you see is what you get !
Look at the pictures taken under different angles to see the real condition : almost in new condition with some very few scratches, the most "important" ones being on the lower side on the edge near the electronics.
